We, the International Election Observer Missions present for the 30 July Harmonised Elections in Zimbabwe, while appreciating the generally peaceful and orderly pre-electoral environment and on voting day, express our grave concern about the regrettable outbreaks of post-election violence.
At the outset, we extend our sympathies to the families and loved ones of those affected by these troubling incidents.
While recognising the right to peaceful protest, we condemn vandalism and destruction of property and call on political party supporters to abide by the law.
